  • Kirk Gibson not concerned with Diamondbacks’ recent struggles

    It’s no secret that the Arizona Diamondbacks, particularly their bats, have struggled as of late. Just like fans, a prolonged slump can affect the players’ psyche.

  • Cardinals add Brodie Croyle to QB mix

    Down some quarterbacks, the Arizona Cardinals picked up free agent Brodie Croyle Wednesday. The question is, why?
